Scope & Content Collection of 58 items related to a city wide protest against the treatment of Polish Jews [scheduled for June 25, 1936], containing letters, clippings, handbills, press releases, notices, telegrams. Items were collected by A.D. Glushakow and dates May to June 1936. Highlights include speeches prepared for meetings; telegrams and letters of support from various groups, individuals, and political figures; ditto, acceptances/regrets for attendence; items on letterhead for protest group; and two small posters, printed in English and Hebrew, calling on the "Jews of Baltimore" to attend meetings.

Items in this accession were originally presented to the museum in January 1970, in the form of items pasted into a scrapbook. The scrapbook was apparently not accessioned at the time it was presented to the museum, but was taken apart and the items separated into three folders. The collection was found in JMM's collections in February 1999, and given an accession number at that time. There is a letter dated January 16, 1970, an original copy in the 1970 accession folder and a copy in the 1998.38 folder.
